Hello all, I am in the need for a low cost electrical meter system to measure kWh and peak demands. Nothing against Emons, Im looking for something that is not so pricy possibly with downloading capability. Any suggestions? Thanx

You can use a DA or a data logger, may have to add a current transformer. dataq.com is one DA supplier. dataq makes a battery operated logger the size of a flash drive. After you record your data, you take the logger and plug it in your computer and read the data.
